Sensory Receptors for Equilibrium: The sensory receptors for equilibrium are specialized types of sensory receptors that are located in the inner ear. The sensory receptors for equilibrium play an important role in sensing movement, position, and balance and maintaining equilibrium. The sensory receptors for equilibrium are not found in hair but are named after the hair-like appearance of their microvilli, protrusions from the cells and move and bend similar to hair. The movement and bending of the sensory receptors for equilibrium generate impulses or signals about movement and positioning of the head and body that are picked up by the 8th cranial nerve and carried to the brain.
Conditions that can afflict the sensory receptors for hearing include labyrinthitis, Meniere's disease, vestibular neuritis, and trauma.
